Venosta Valley High Mountain Trail: Resia/Reschen – Stava/Staben
Altitude meters uphill: 4.693hm
Altitude meters downhill: 5.711hm
Starting point: Reschen/Etschquelle
The Venosta Valley High Mountain Trail runs `from` the source of the Adige at the Resia Pass in the border triangle to Stava in the Lower Venosta Valley and combines different stages of the Monte Sole mountain route. The 108 km multi-day tour runs along partly existing and partly new footpaths, the route leads along the old Waalwege trails (trails along old irrigation channels) and over connecting paths between mountain farms. Here, mountain- and nature fans, hikers and mountaineers usually find nice weather and a clear view to the high glaciers. Highlights of the hike are therefore the vistas with a panoramic view to the Ortler Group and the vegetation of the Monte Sole which is rich in species.
But you don’t necessarily have to embark on a multi-day tour. The individual stages of the Venosta Valley High Mountain Trail are also suitable for day trips, as the alpine trail can easily be accessed `from` the villages via ascents and descents. Each stage offers scenic, cultural, as well as culinary highlights.
